My First Oil Painting by MonaParvin My First Oil Painting by MonaParvin
My first oil painting experiment :heart:

It was so much fun and I did really enjoy it. I had few oil colors that I tried to use on this painting I enjoyed the mixing a lot :)

I notice that unlike watercolor painting, this was harder to take photo because of reflective surface :giggle: So colors on skin are so washed out

All the critiques are welcome I like to know what and what not :D

Thank you for viewing my friends :love::blowkiss:

Oh my, I am so captivated by this painting! I am so proud of you for your first attempt, but not even surprised that it was this magnificent!

Since I do not paint with oils, (though I have always wished to, but lack the facilities) I don't know that I'm qualified to critique this, but I'm so in love with it, I want to share my opinions and feelings.

The colors are wonderful. I love the "pop" feel to it. I like how you have the blue in the face, tying it into the colors around the face. The bright colors surrounding the face are perfect, and very complimentary. I like how you did the the curved colors, then used the straight lines at the bottom indicating a neck, and the rest indicating hair. There is a nice sense of fluidity and motion here.

I am absolutely amazed at the detail on the eyes. They are so captivating! I simply cannot get over the superb quality of your detailing. The lips are another detail that really stands out. I love the gradient of color, and the lighting on them. The full rich shape of them give the face such a sultry feeling, and add to her beauty. The skin tones are wonderful.

I know the difficulties in capturing a good photo of a painting with a camera, and if this is that wonderful with a POOR photo, I can only begin to imagine how fabulous it must be to the real eye!

I sure hope this isn't your last attempt at oils. It seems EVERYTHING you do is wonderful, and this is no exception. I hope to see more oils from you in the future....

Superb Mona, Excellent first go!!! Oils are superb to work with. Their colours are so rich and blend nicely. They can also be thinned right down to create washes similar to watercolours. You are a natural, Nice one!!! :D
